Which character do you play?
Kenickie Murdoch.

Kenickie is a social character, in particular with females. Always letting his charismatic side get the better of him.

What do you like most about playing this character?
When playing Kenickie, I enjoy being a player without the real world consequences.

Have there been any challenges taking on this role?
Definitely singing, not a favourite of mine, but I have enjoyed developing my singing ability.

Grease is best known for its catchy musical tunes, do you have a favourite song?
Not to be bias, but most likely Grease Lightning.

If you were a high school student in the 1950s, which Grease character would you most relate to?
Have to say, the role of Kenickie seems to reflect me.

Is this your first stage show/musical or have you performed before?
I was in Legally Blonde last year, but I played a less major role.

Who do you look up to (as an actor/singer/performer)?
Rowan Atkinson.

Do you have plans to continue with any performing once you leave school?
I haven’t really thought about the future in that aspect, but it would be cool to be involved with more acting performances.

GREASE hits the stage at Southwell School Performing Arts Centre June 30 – July 4.
